Britain more likely to leave EU without deal after Boris Johnson becomes PM

Britain is more likely to leave the European Union without a deal after Boris Johnson has been chosen as the new leader of the Conservative Party and the next British Prime Minister.

Johnson has promised to deliver Brexit on 31 October even if it means leaving without a deal.

This pledge comes despite the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney’s announcement in June, that there were around 150,000 businesses in the UK that still do not have the paperwork necessary to export to the EU if there is a no-deal.

Mr Carney said around three quarters of UK businesses have done as much as they can to prepare for a no-deal. "But it doesn't mean they are fully ready," he said.

Victoria Holland, corporate and commercial partner who heads up B P Collins’ Brexit team adds:

“We are here to answer the legal and practical queries you have as you try to prepare your business ahead of the 31 October deadline. Time is running out, so please get in touch as soon as possible.”
